Fayose lifts curfew on Ekiti

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Sunday lifted the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed on Ado Ekiti metropolitan environment since Thursday, with immediate effect.

The governor has also declared N2m reward for anyone with useful information on how to arrest the kidnappers of 11 victims freed in the early hours of Saturday.
Fayose, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, urged the people living in Ado Ekiti to remain law abiding and go about their normal business.
He also urged them to “cooperate with the government and the security agencies in the maintenance of law and order.
“The governor also added that the security agencies have been directed further to arrest and prosecute anybody found disturbing or fomenting trouble as a way of disturbing the peace of the state,” the statement added.
Fayose had declared the 6pm to 6am curfew to prevent the raging fight between transport workers and Hausa traders from spreading to other parts of the state.
No fewer than 50 shops and two residential buildings were burnt as the fracas got worse.
